Clopay Glass Garage Doors in New Issue of Midwest Living Magazine

Aug 26, 2010

If you haven’t had a chance to tour the Museum of Science and Industry’s Fourth Annual Smart Home: Green + Wired in Chicago, pick up the September/October issue of Midwest Living magazine and enjoy a guided tour from the comfort of your own couch.

Senior home editor Carol Scalla was thinking outside the box when she gave the home a fresh, new natural look for this year’s exhibit. One idea we love (of course) is her take on versatile outdoor living. A patio and trellis extending from the kitchen connect the detached garage to the house. A second modern see-through Avante Collection aluminum and glass garage door on the back end of the garage opens to enlarge the patio entertaining area.
